Watch What You're Flushing!

The Snyderville Basin Water Reclamation District (SBWRD) is urging homebound, toilet paper-strapped residents to think twice before flushing anything except toilet paper.

That goes for paper towels, tissues, napkins and supposedly flushable wipes! According to  Michael Luers, General Manager of the Water Reclamation District, flushable wipes are not flushable, and they are not biodegradable.  Luers is warning people that these items can cause sewer backups in their homes and wreak havoc on the wastewater system. He asks: Please don’t flush those down the toilet.

Tough but fair, Leslie is the woman most of Park City wakes up with every weekday morning. Leslie has been at KPCW since 1990 and her years at KPCW have given her depth and insight, guiding her as she asks local leaders and citizens the questions on everyone’s minds during the live interviews of the Local News Hour.
